Couples Counselor

Joanna Jewell, M.A., R. Psych., CSAT, CMAT

Registered Psychologist

#620 One Executive Place, 1816 Crowchild Tr. N.W., Calgary, AB T2M 3Y7

Most people want communication skills. Granted, those are needed but improving a relationship, increasing connection and intimacy, and navigating difficult conversations around areas of differing opinions involves yourself - you are your most valuable ally in any relationship. Understanding yourself, your beliefs, reactions and having ways to 'show up differently' in the relationship are your best bet to feeling better about your relationship, no matter what aspect you want to work on. Through my therapy techniques, I invite you to understand yourself in relationship as well as learn more effective ways to know and be known, the incredibly courageous work of intimacy.

Clinical Social Worker

#202 - 2120 Kensington Road N.W., Calgary, AB T2N 3R7

I offered structured and effective methods for working with couples whether the goal is to improve the relationship or successfully separation. I use assessment tools that highlight what is working and not working in troubled relationships where couples want to stay together. Strategies to target problem areas are chosen and practiced in sessions and at home. By improving communication skills, conflict resolution skills and deepening couple intimacy, couples are able to feel more successful in their relationships. When there is closeness and comfort in our most important relationships it can positively impact our overall wellbeing.

Brenda Duncan, MSW RSW

Clinical Social Worker

132 - 17th Avenue NW, Calgary, AB T2M 0M6

Working with relationships, I respect each person's perspective and encourage both of you in the process of discovering how you can be more effective as partners in building a better life together. However painful your conflict or disconnection may be right now, there is room to develop interest and skills to enhance the relationship and work together to deal with challenges you face. How we work together depends on your goals and unique circumstances. We will develop a process of counselling which recognizes and values each of you and supports the building of a central, meaningful partnership.

Diane Huebert, M.C., R.Psych.

Registered Psychologist

505 - 30 Avenue NW, Calgary, AB T2M 2N7

With an interest in family systems and strategic approaches, working with couples was a natural outcome in my practice. Although conflict resolution and good communication stand to benefit any relationship, during my time working with couples I have found the most significant factor to be the ability to defer the power-struggles that influence all relationships. This translates into choosing to accept and love what is in a partner. Sounds easy, yet the vulnerability involved is often a challenge for most of us. When working with couples focusing on how to assist them in strengthening the bond between the parties is the focus of the work.

Couples Counselor

Cathryn Hanssen, MA, CSAT

Registered Psychologist

Suite 225, Building B8 (Currie Barracks), 2526 Battleford Ave SW, Calgary, AB T3E 7J4

Couples bring different sets of experiences into a relationship, with each person having their own needs and belief systems. When working with couples I allow each person's perspective to be heard. Communication and understanding are very important factors in a healthy relationship. Often when problems occur it is because communication breaks down - strengthening this aspect of the relationship as well as the connection between both partners are important focuses in my work with couples.

Couples Counselor

Maureen Theberge, MACP

Registered Psychologist

Suite 260, 1632-14th Ave. NW, Calgary, AB T2N 1M7

I offer counselling to couples who have experienced a loss and/or are facing transition. The loss of a child, family member, or friend can create unexpected stress on a relationship. Moving to a new city or country can mean the loss of a couple's supportive network. Job loss or retirement changes the dynamics of a couple which creates unique challenges. Transitioning to children moving away is another stage in a relationship which can introduce unexpected stress. I help couples mourn their losses and navigate transitions to create new meaning in their lives and in their relationship.

Couples Counselor

Robert Hammel,

Registered Psychologist

202 4603 Varsity Drive NW, Calgary, AB T3A 2V7

I employ the well researched and proven approach from the Gottman Method to help couples learn about and develop new ways to appreciate and develop greater fondness for each other. I help clients realize that truly the core of an intimate relationship is really friendship, and not necessarily the all encompassing passion and always being "in love" that popular media/culture have led us to believe that marriage should always be about. Marriages naturally wax and wane, and aren't always perfect; sometimes people fight and disagree and that doesn't always have to end in separation or divorce. There are no perfect marriages -- just ones that are good enough to make us feel happy and content

Couples Counselor

Eunice Peterson, MA., R. Psych.

Registered Psychologist

#200, 2003-14 St. NW, Calgary, AB T2M 1T6

Couples counseling is an excellent option when a couple is struggling in an area and feels a third person provides the safety, insight or support needed to problem solve. Typical issues might be trust, communication, safety, family of origin issues, finances and conflict management. Research in couples counseling has embraced the uniqueness of both genders and the biological responses that can get in the way of positive change and self-managment. If you feel your relationship needs help, intervene sooner rather than later.

Couples Counselor

Sig Taylor, MSW, RSW, RMFT

Registered Marriage & Family Therapist

1511 - 10th St. S.W., Calgary, AB T2R 1E8

If you’re considering marriage counselling or therapy, the most important decision you can make is choosing the right couples counsellor. I've been working with couples for almost 30 years and I've been featured on CBC, Reader’s Digest, Macleans, Elle Magazine, The Globe & Mail, the Calgary Herald and most recently in the August edition of Zoomer magazine. You know the consequences of divorce - it hurts, it costs money, it lowers your standard of living, it hurts children, it affects your person friendships and relationships. If you're putting your marriage and future on the line, make sure you get the best counsellor you can find, one that's PRO MARRIAGE AND COMMITMENT.

Couples Counselor

Living Well Counselling Services Inc., MA, MEd, RSW

Counsellors, Psychologist & Social Worker

4803 Centre Street NW, Ste 04, Calgary, AB T2E 2Z6

One of the biggest problems with marriage counselling today is that counsellors use methods that haven't been proven effective by research. Many marriage therapists have worked with systems of therapy that they thought would be effective, but unfortunately they are not. This can then leave couples feeling like 'its them' when really it's just the therapy. Both Jennifer Watts & Dr. Patrick Keelan use Gottman-based marital counselling, which is based on 40 years of research and is proven to yield results.
